Okay. So you all have hung in there with me, through thick and thin. You have seen my train wreck, and you have seen me say I was going to work on Baby Girl’s room, the living room, the family room, my master bedroom and the dining room. (Okay, that one I did actually work on a little bit.)
Progress is being made, but not very much, you know?
Well. I think I finally figured out WHY!!!
It’s my studio. You know, the room where I actually DO many of the projects that I want to do in order to finish these rooms. This is where I sew, where I paint small projects, where I build things. Sure, some of the heavy lifting happens in the garage, but this is the center of most of it.
And it hasn’t been a pleasant place to work. In fact, just a couple of weeks ago, it looked like this:
It took two weeks, but I cleaned it up. I mean, really cleaned it. It’s not perfect, and I still have a few last things. But it’s, basically, clean!!
Not very sexy, I know, but this is where it begins, right? So here’s how it looks now:
Here’s the cool part. Now that it’s clean, I am motivated!!! I really feel like tackling the world! And I feel like starting here, in my studio.
Yes, it’s clean. Clean is good. At least I can work.
But I want to be INSPIRED. I want to come in here and just be surrounded by gorgeousness and everything that makes my heart sing. You know?
I know you know.
So I’m going to gussy up my studio. And I know that I mean it this time, because, truly, this is the root of everything.
What a relief to be clear!!
